New Jersey School District Proposes Random Drug, Alcohol Tests for High Schoolers
A New Jersey school district is proposing random alcohol and drug testing for thousands of high school students who could lose school privileges and be forced to undergo counseling if they test positive.

Parents protested at a school board meeting Monday, where a preliminary plan was outlined that would affect 5,000 students at the Demarest and Old Tappan high schools.

The district says students would not be suspended and the drug test results would not go on their disciplinary records, but the penalties and loss of privileges become more severe if additional positive results are discovered.

The school says it hopes the policy acts as a deterrent for students against drugs and alcohol.

Re: New Jersey School District Proposes Random Drug, Alcohol Tests for High Schoolers
What a stupid idea. The school district said that if drugs or alcohol were found on a students test,they would be suspended...As if students WANT to be at school. Do they really think this is a punishment or infact LEGAL? What a joke my state has become. Prime for the raping of every single resident and a perfect stepping stone into more control and less freedom

Forced to undergo counseling?

There is a private interest group funding this measure, that's for sure. The companies that will be involved stand to gain a lot of revenue through conducting the thousands of drug tests and also from the mandatory counseling.

Tons of money for some fatcat with his hands in the "Drug rehab" industry to make. I enjoy that parents brought up the question that if the students should be tested so should the teachers and the administration said no we will NOT test the teachers. I can GUARANTEE there are plenty of teachers showing up to work hung over from the night before on account that I work for the state installing breathalyzers into cars for people with DUIs. I have many school teachers in my shop

No, they won't be suspended just loose privileges probably like participating in sports or other activities.

Oooo well that makes sense. Suspended them from the sports teams that keep them busy after school so they have nothing to do now and can smoke even more pot and drink even more alcohol than usual. Very smart thinking process behind this idea

IDK, it would suck being the star football player then getting booted off for being drunk. I like the idea, I'm surprised parents were against it. There should be a penalty, just like how some work places require drug testing or they get fired. School should prepare them for the real world.

It used to be you were presumed innocent until PROVEN guilty

now its: we know your guilty, prove you aren't.

While the parasite you elect rob you blind, they got you to believe illegal drugs were the biggest problem facing America When the truth is the drugs prescribed by a STATE licensed doctor are FAR, FAR, more likely to kill you

What the fuck happened?

My guess is School curriculums mandated by the state has created generations of idiots.
